    Water Collect Rain Water
    Trace the water that flows down the drain from your house to the largest body of water nearby. What is the route it takes?

    I can tell where our home's drainage goes out of the immediate area but can not tell beyond that.

    A few of the changes I made at the beginning of April are already new habits.  Wooot!!!

    What are your top 3-5 core values? How did you narrow it down to those as being your core values?

    1) my personal wellness (mind & body)
    2) appropriately balancing work and life in this work-from-home environment
    3) spending as much time outdoors as I can
    These core values are important to me during this season of life as I have found myself being sucked into depressive thoughts and actions (non-movement).  And recognizing that I have the power to make the change.

      Work/ life is so very important! We need to stop thinking that being overworked is somehow linked to success.

    The fresh air has been such a blessing.  I love the smell of outdoors after a rain and as of late, we've had a few opportunities to experience this.
